HC Deb 30 June 1955 vol 543 cc43-4W
61. Brigadier Clarke

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will give an assurance that provincial police used in London during the railway strike did not suffer financially.

Major Lloyd-George

Police officers from other forces who came to London to assist the Metropolitan police during the emergency were provided with free accommodation and were entitled to subsistence allowances at the rates prescribed in the Police Regulations. I have no reason to think that any of them suffered financial loss as a result of performing this duty.
